THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, FRIDAY MORNING, - MARCH 20, 1908.
3 i THE HOOSIER IS PREVALENT At the Basket Picnic Held Yesterday Indiana Oratory, Poetry, Music and Feasting- On the .Program. The Hoosiers held forth yesterday nearly all day at Kustlake park where about two hundred of them gathered ear.y from city and countryside for the annual basket picnic and reunion. The weather though a little threaten ing: was pleasant and the crowd of Indiaiutns thoroughly enjoyed the oc casion. A diversified series of events was to take place and all assembled with the spirit of goodfellow ship and Plate pride. There was not a single unpleasant incident to mar the happi ness of the passing hours, and but one disappointment perhaps, and that was the absence of Governor Kibbey who had been expected to deliver the prin cipal . address of the day. Honever from him nas received a letter which was read during the course of the af ternoon program. The morning- was devoted to forming acquaintances and discussion of topics of special interest to Hoosiers. The park management gave the grounds over to the uses of the Indianans, and the swings and the grassy lawns, and the boats on the lake with an oarsman were -utilized by the children and older folks as well. At noon dinner was spread on the lawn and the sumptuous feasts were brought from the baskets. The iavixhhess with which the ladles so adept In the culinary art had pro vided for the occasion, left nothing to be desired, except to lounge In well fed ease, till the Indiana oratory and poetry and reminiscences should be marshaled on the scene. - At the close of a varied and interest ing afternoon's program it wax voted to make the organization ' permanent and the picnic an annual occurrence. The following officer were elected: Joseph H. lyibbey, president; DrMon ical, vice president: Mrs. E. T. fol dings, secretary; Mrs. G. F. Merryman, treasurer. The speech-making and music were listened to in the park summer theater building where the people assembled shortly after dinner. Dr. Monical presided and briefly ad dressed the meeting, and introduced the speakers. Judge Kyle spoke to the Hoosiers in a few well chosen remarks and read the letter from the governor which was as follows: The Governor's Letter. 'It is with regret that I have to an nounce to you my inability to attend the Indiana picnic on the 19th instant. Official matters requiring- my personal attention call me to other parts of the territory, so that I shall be absent from Phoenix on that day. I cannot refrain, however, from sending you and the other Hoosiers -who may be assembled on that occasion, a few lines of greet ing. "It is a notable trait" of Americans that they can and do readlly.and con stautly expatriate themselves, and yet are of all people of the earth the most patriotic. We Hoosiers left the" state to which we were, and are yet, attach ed by many ties. We are proud of Indiuna, of its people, of its history, of its development. We cannot review its history without reflecting that we are glad that we may claim that we too are Hoosiers. Tet now we are as com pletely loyal to our new adopted home we are as truly Arizonians as ever we were Hoosiers. It is this that prompted me to note the readiness with which the average American ex patriates himself. Strictly, I suppose, the term Is not applicable; for after all true Americans regard the whole American nation as their country this allegiance Is to the whole as well as to any particular part, and in a strict sense it is not expatriation to remove from the state of our nativity to assume a new home anywhere with in the union. Still, it is characteris tically American. As his country is broad, open and comprehensive, so too are his mental attitudes, his ambition, and his patriotism. "While there is in the heart of every one of us a loyal pride of Indiana, there is, too, the equal pride of Ari zona; and combining the two, and equally of them both is our pride as Americans. "I truly wish that I might be with you on this happy occasion. "Please accept, and convey to my fellow Hoosiers my hearty greetings. "Sincerely yours, "JOS. H. KIBBEY." The Indian school band which was seated on the stage followed with a selection, and most inspiring music by the organization was intersperced throughout the remainder of the pro gram, including national airs and Irish melodies and popular . compositions which found a warm place in the hearts of the hearers. Mrs. E. T. Col lings gave an excellent reading of a poem by Alice Greenwood. Dr. A. M. Gibbons a native of Ripley county de livered an extemporaneous address. He dwelled briefly on the greatness of In diana as a commonwealth which had once been his home, and then passed to the vastness of the country of which It is a. notable and historic subdivision. He illustrated forcibly the magnificent distances in the width and breath and the scope of the United States, by the incident In the life of an English, lec turer who was booked to lecture from New York to Frisco. He got as far west 'as Chicago ani finding that he was only beginning hU Journey can celled his dates, saying he would never attempt to talk in a country as big as this one. and where there were so many other people talking at once. While the speaker said he held sacred ly In memory his recollections of In diana, he had found much more to ad mire In the Western Empire, He con trasted the Indiana mud and snow and weather to the bright salubrious days in the Salt River valley. liait.tu.

Hood's Sarsaparilla i3 pre-eminently the medicine to take. It sharpens the appetite, makes the blood pure and rich, and strengthens all the digestive organs, "I was all run down and had no appetite. After taking one bottle of Hood's Sarsaparilla I could eat anything I wished." Mrs. Amanda Fenner, Oneco, Conn. Accept no substitute for Hood's Sarsaparilla In usual liquid form or in chocolated tablets called Saxsaubs. 100 doses $1. Miss Gilchrist recited a Riley poem, entitled "I'm From Old Hancock, Too." Rev. R. H. Wilkinson was introduced and made some happy allusions to In diana's history. His county, Franken burg had furnished eight governors, three United States senators, three generals to the civil war and other noteworthy statesmen and citizens. Goodfellowship was the spirit of the occasion. "I think that we Hoosiers as a class are given to goodfellowship. Indiana is a grand old state. Its early immigrants were of the best blood of Ohio, New England and other states. There were two townships in my coun ty which were settled by the Irishmen from the north of Ireland. The char, acter of the citizenship was the best. There were Yankees in the western part. Switzerland county was settled by the Swiss. In Dubois the Germans were the pioneers, and along the west, em side from Terre Haute to old Vin cenes were in the early days, the French. The name Hoosier was not originally a name to designate In dianans. Natural conditions in Indiana had much to do with forming the char acter of the people. The soil helped to make them great and self-reliant. Chemical analysis shows the soil holds an unusual amount of heat unit and nourishing elements. A notable fact is that the Indianans were the tallest soldiers in the civil war. Indiana sent into the field during the war a larger per cent of its men as soldiers than any other state. On the first call 5.000 men, the full quota, was made up in two weeks." Dr. Wilkinson then spoke of some of the pleasant past times of the young Hoosiers in the early days, the frolics, the husking bees, the quilting parties and other old fashioned pleasures participated in by those who lived on "the banks of the Wabash" and beyond. One of the most enjoyable parts of the program was the volunteer ad dresses furnished by those most inspir ed by the- occasion to speak their hon est thoughts and sentiments. Rem iniscesces of "the airly days." the puncheon floor, i the trundle beds that each helt two." and the "latch string ahanging out o" the door," tog rollings and neighborly social events of kindred nature, were recounted and heard with much interest. Among the volunteer speakers were Mrs. E. T. Collings, Mrs. Joseph Kibbey. Dr. Monical then introduced Mrs. M. Craig a native of Carroll county whose grandfather came to Indiana in 1800. Her recollections were most homely and appropriate, harking back to the log cabin days and the "rail-roads" through the prim eval forests. The "rail-roads" were constructed of hickory rails laid cross ways of the bogs and mires and were recommended by the speaker as being better than pink pills for pale people. n. u. t. Claire proved to be a na tural humorist and said that he was born in Indiana by preference. He claimed though that he was no speak er, he had hud no chance to learn, for he was married young. His education had been sadly neglected he said, or rather his neglect had been sadly edu cated. But F. J. Murphy of South Bend came forward to the defense of the ladies and tossed several bouquets along the suffrage line which were much applauded. He said beauty had never blossomed in the female of low er life. You did not look for It in Hot tentot women but in the men. not in the Indian squaw but in the "stralght-as-an-arrow' figure of the brave. But in Christian races and civilization beauty came to its full flower In worn anhnod, to which Inriianu women were no exeeptioa. Mrs. Hunter gave a pleasing rendi tion of a Riley favorite who is rightly called the poet laureate of the people Mrs. Stewart spoke -briefly along a reminiscent line. Levi .Young who later moved that the Indiana society be made a permanent organization drew a word picture of log-cabin days in Indiana. This he was well able to do for he had been born in a log cabin, a fact of which' he was proud. He de scribed the manner of construction of the cabin and' its old fashioned and Impoverished furnishings. The program was concluded with a national air by the Indian band, and the day became a page in Arizona his tory, which alt present will many times recall with most happy remembrace.
